Ensure Components Are Installed Per Server Role

  • Solution: Ensure you have all the components needed for the role you are working on installing. Otherwise, the installation will not succeed and the installation wizard will assist you by reminding you to turn on certain components you need.

The following components are necessary for the roles you install:

Mailbox Role:

  • Internet Information Services (IIS)
  • COM+ access (IIS 6.0 component)
  • World Wide Web Publishing Service (W3SVC)

These can all be installed through Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel on Server 2003, or through Programs and Features in Server 2008.

The Client Access Server Role:

  • World Wide Web Service
  • ASP.NET
  • For Outlook Anywhere: Remote Procedure Call (RPC) over HTTP Proxy

These can all be installed through Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel on Server 2003, or through Programs and Features in Server 2008.

The Edge Transport Role:

Must not be a member of an Active Directory domain, but must have the following:

  • On a Server 2003: Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) installed to provide functionality that is needed.
  • On a Server 2008 with Exchange 2007 SP1: Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS)

The Hub Transport Role:

Because Exchange 2007 Hub Transport servers use their own implementation of the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), you need to avoid installing the IIS SMTP services. This goes for the Edge Transport server as well.

The Unified Messaging Role:

  • Microsoft Exchange Speech Service—This is installed automatically when you choose to install Exchange 2007 with the UM role. However, if you have a server that runs Microsoft Speech Server, you have to remove the Speech Server services because UM relies on its own set of services.
  • Windows Media Encoder 9 Series x64 Edition.
  • Windows Media Audio 9 Voice codec for x64.
  • Microsoft Core XML Services (MSXML) 6.0.
